Learning Dollars     Custom Typescript and Redux-Saga Template with CRA     Developer     Passion Project
Jul 2020 - Aug 2020
Arts and Entertainment

  • I used React as the JavaScript Framework (library) of choice in the GitHub project
  • I demonstrated to the reader how to use the Redux Toolkit to abstract the React Redux setup process and thus reduced the boilerplate code produced in the first GitHub+ blog project.
  • I showed the reader how to setup and use Typescript as static type checker system, which means more safety and fewer bugs when shipping a react app.

Skills used: React, Typescript, Redux
